1:05 pm

1:08 pm
alan greenspan was called the maestro, navigating the american economy brilliantly and then we had a financial crisis and it hurt his reputation, lasting into the history books. what matters now is is the economy going to pick up? is there going to be another financial bubble? if bad things happen that reflect on ben bernanke's legacy. if we get out as the fed is expecting, if inflation doesn't take off he will end up finishing strong. lori: a personal question and you can say no way. what is your legacy? is next for you? have been so close in your coverage of reporting on fed chairman ben bernanke and colleagues referred to as the fed's favorite mouthpiece, is there a book in the works by you? what is the plan? >> i keep covering the fed.

1:10 pm
fed is committed to the plan in december. it was a plan that has ben bernanke's signature on it but they came up with it, she came a forward with that to gradually wind down the bond blank program. the really big question for janet yellen that is going to test her and mark her legacy is what happens on interest rates. at ome point she is the one who will have to raise them so the question is is she going to raise them sooner than expected? they are expecting late 2015. she will be tested on that. as the economy grows faster, unemployment keeps coming down she might have to decide to make a move sooner than they plan. heard that, what we know about janet yellen is she wants to push monetary policy as hard as she can to get the economy growing as fast as they can.
1:11 pm

ashley: good afternoon, everybody, i'm ashley webster. tracy: and i'm tracy byrnes. talk about a taxing -- super bowl players like peyton manning could pay up to $60,000 in taxes on their winnings. so should the so-called jock tax be eliminated? your tweets later. ashley: our week long look how you can cash in on the super bowl. today's focus, transformers, age of extinction, producer and super bowl advertiser viacom. tracy: plus, hiring game. how about playing a videogame at your next job interview? huh. i will fail. i will never get the job. we have a ceo of that company and it is revolutionizing the hr business. ashley: my kids should be fine on that. rolling up the profits. making money on the growing marijuana movement. we'll have all that and much more on this high-powered hour of "markets now." i did not write that. no more puns.
2:01 pm
tracy: pot jokes keep coming. top of the hour. time for stocks. it is the best day of the year for stocks. there should be like confetti and stuff on the floor today, nicole. >> there is always garbage on the floor. confetti would be good. if you're a bull you like what you're seeing up 100 points on the dow jones industrials. i heard people say, i don't know how many, sell the rallies. meantime the dow has been to the downside this year. today has been a long, well, right now still below. but above .7% you will see the best day of the year. visa really helped the dow jones industrials to stay afloat. gdp, well we got that in. that was good news. we watched some of the nees here, economically doing well, consumer spending rose the most in three years. so you do have less worries about emerging markets. you made it through the fed and earnings have been pretty good in the last 24 hours with good forecasts. so that set it up for a winning day on wall street. that being said, let's look at 3m. i will turn the arrow around because it is the number two
2:02 pm
-@loser in the dow jones industrials. down 1.7%. 3m you may think of scotch tape, next care bandaids, post-it notes. 3m has to -- so many businesses but quarterly sales didn't do that well. they were hurt by declines in the consumer business, slowing growth in latin america. i did read though that some areas did well for them but it was the forecast weaker for 3m and so it is to the downside. back to you. ashley: nicole, thank you, as we see the dow slip under triple-digit gains. still good. time to make money with charles payne. oh, charles, why do experts seem to be wrong so often. they said don't buy this, stock is on fire. >> this one is, facebook, i want to go through a, not recent headlines but over the last year or so. ashley: okay. >> business to community, august in 2012, had a headline in the article, why facebook can not make enough money and never
2:03 pm
will. then april of 2012, forbes. here is the headline. here is why google and facebook might completely disappear in the next five years. they went on to say, trying to figure out how to make money on the web. has no idea how it will make money in mobile. tracy: what year was that? >> that was 2012. just a year ago, another publication called quarts, the headline, will never make a significant profit. they pointed to the fact that their expenses are too high and they only made 64 million in the fourth quarter of the year before. well, fast forward. those profits were up 700%. i got to tell you, it really is amazing -- ashley: what is your take on this, stock, charles? >> you know what? we were scared out of it because teens were leaving. i got to tell you, mark zuckerberg has done an amazing job. there is no other way to get around this, they do have 1.3 billion people and they're learning how to leverage them. you can understand how anyone
2:04 pm
would be nervous because we bought into the hype of 1999 and 2,000 and we got scorched. ashley: they're finding a way to monetize their popularity. i read somewhere google per user averages $8 per advertising revenue, and facebook is $2. they have a lot of room. >> they have a lot of room to go but the key question could they do this on mobile? last quarter, 53% of revenue is mobile. obviously serious upward trajectory. this morning all the firms are trying to catch up. i still have the problem way they went public. i thought they used their subscriber base in a despicable way but i have to tip my ha the to mark zuckerberg. >> it is working. >> this is something to people going sometimes with their gut and not necessarily listening to quote, unquote experts. tracy: with all due respect to older people like us, maybe they see something we old folks don't? >> you're right. i betcha a lot of people under 30 years old long this stock and a lot of people over 30 shorting
2:05 pm
it coming into the day. ashley: great stuff. charles payne, thanks so much. appreciate it. tracy: charles, he mentioned google. google happens to be hanging up on motorola, basically selling the mobile phone business to china's lenovo but keeping many of the money-making motorola patents. that is actually pretty smart. dennis kneale dialing up with details now. what is going on? >> google up 3%. the stock may in a relief rally on news it is ending the pain and selling that loss-riddled motorola smartphone business to len november know of china. google paid $12.5 billion for motorola less than two years ago. straining way beyond the core competency and fat profit margins of search advertising and trying its hands athlete that gadget business, no room for screw-ups and faded motorola brand. google if nothing else is confident of abilities to pull off anything. they blew a billion dollars on green energy research, certain it could solve problems that had
2:06 pm
alluded everyone else. google is one of the smartest companies in the world. it just isn't so smart at making smartphones. buying motorola at 12 billion, selling out at three billion produce as $9 billion loss but google recouped $6 billion selling offset top business and motorola cash and tax loss credits. problem motorola ran up losses of $2 billion more in the 20 months that google owned it. so wall street is happy the hemorrhaging is over. google far better known on binging on acquisitions. 20 in the past year bizarre amalgam of properties. stuff like gear for drones, military robots, artificial intelligence, snooping thermostats. airborne wind turbines and these creepy critters from boston dynamics. you know, stuff that has barely any relation to advertising. the company's lifeblood, so it is hard to tell whether all this is part of a cogent, overarching strategy or a food fight. throw lots of stuff up against the wall and see what sticks,
2:07 pm
trace isy. ashley: like a shotgun approach. you will hit something. tracy: it is working either way. you can't deny what is happening. they're doing something and simultaneously sort of taking over the world. >> i had an argument with a guy that formerly ran google x, secret research lab folding up a lot of acquisition. i said that has nothing to do with ads and they shouldn't be doing it. he kind of convinced me i was wrong. one thhng it is good for company pride. it helps lure best people when you do really cool stuff. it makes the company a better place to work. that brings better talent. tracy: it is about taking over the world. >> it is. ashley: they can afford the trial and error, let's face it. >> billions in profit mask a lot of failures, in motorola that was one of more visible failures. ashley: no kidding. >> dennis kneale that is good stuff. that's a good story. >> thanks. ashley: plus we get to show the creepy robot video again. tracy: for people on cirrus, you didn't miss anything, creepy robots. ashley: robots doing the river dance, i don't know.
2:08 pm
big game, big tax bill, after sunday peyton manning might be better off retiring. has nothinggto do with his on the field skills. let's just say the taxman cometh. tracy: in our tech minute, why the ftc ising hanging up on the landline phones. a sign of changing times. ashley: target blaming outside members for credit card nightmare. liz macdonald talking about how much data those third party vendors got away with.

2:11 pm
we enable you to reach global markets and drive forward with broader possibilities. cme group: how the world advances. ashley: when peyton manning takes the field at metlife stadium there is one opponent he can not avoid, the taxman. according to one tax analyst peyton's best bet after the super bowl is either retire or demand a trade. joining to us explain is okay at that gone director of tax services. -- octogon. if manning con wins on sunday and continues to play for the broncos he will own the garden state, 60,000 in taxes. new jersey is the big winner, not so much peyton. >> that's correct. between spent there for super bowl and game at the jets next
2:12 pm
year, it will be about $60,000. tracy: because of this ridiculous jock tax. i don't think a lot of people knew it existed. this imposed tax on athletes. this started when michael jordan won in california and lakers were pissed and they sent him a bill. >> that's right. that's right. tracy: so tell everyone, because it is based on days in the state, percentage of your salary. >> correct. based on days in the state, divided by total days working for the team for the year, multiplied by your salary over the entire calendar year, regardless of what you make for one specific game such as the super bowl, which peyton manning will make 92,000 or 46,000 win or lose. ashley: sean, this is interesting because are we just picking on professional athletes? i know it is the jock tax, what about doctor, singers, entertainers go from city to city, state to state? could a case be made that these athletes are being unfairly targeted? i know they make a huge amount
2:13 pm
of money but even so? >> right, entertainers as well get taxed by every state. commuters, depends on the state's rules. states are lot more lenients with executives that travel between states but they're also a lot hardtory track whereas professional athletes, their schedules are readily available to the public so it is easy to go after them. tracy: it is crazy. they know already peyton will play the jets in jersey in 2014 presuming he stays. let me ask you this. why if he is traded, is that a good deal for him? you will still have annual income for the year? i get if he retired, less money to tax but if traded still making millions of dollars. >> new jersey would end up taxing him bade on his income with the broncos for the first part of the year and then they would tax him for, whichever other team he were to play for for the other part of the year. tracy: yeah, jersey will not let the money go. >> no. and i honestly don't see manning
2:14 pm
asking for a trade. ashley: how much time and effort is put into calculating all this? it seems a tangled mess, when you're talking about where they are, how long they stayed there. i mean it has to be a nightmare. >> it is a bit of an effort, but that's why, athletes need specialized preparers. tracy: keeps guys like you in business, right? so got florida that doesn't charge state tax. i would think everyone from now on wants the super bowl to be in florida, especially based on events like this. but then you have other states that have like cockamamie rules. we were talking how tennessee earlier only charge as flat fee to the nfl and nba players. >> yay. nba and nhl players. tracy: right. too many acronyms. ashley: but, you know, sean, because of that tennessee law, those players at the very minimum on the pay scale actually lose money. think there was an nba team where players play against the memphis grizzlies they end up paying for the privilege. >> oh, you're correct. you're exactly right.
2:15 pm
it is rid includes law. nhl players association and nhl are working to overturn the law in tennessee. ashley: fascinating a lot of people didn't realize. tracy: before we let you go, any odds that they could somehow -- this will go away or do you think the jock tax is here to stay? >> i think the jock tax is here to stay unfortunately. ashley: yeah. tracy: bummer. ashley: good for you. tracy: yeah. blame jordan i guess. >> or california. tracy: california, exactly. ashley: sean packard, thank you so much for battling the traffic and joining us today. we appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. tracy: great story. it is a crazy story. ashley: hard to believe. tracy: yeah, although jersey, no. not hard to believe. jersey taxes just about anything they can. it is quarter past. we have to get a check on the markets. nicole petallides on the floor of the exchange, watching homebuilders. hey nicole. >> i am, tracy and ashley, keeping an eye on the homebuilders. the group seems mixed. pulte and kb home with up
2:16 pm
arrows. beazer homes, d.r. horton, hovnanian all selling off. hovnanian is down 2%. there are several pieces of news the first is pending home sales which came in and actually showed a drop. sales fell to 8.7% last month. poor weather, higher prices. this is not the greatest season for a selling homes. but you also got in two pieces of news as far as earnings. pulte group and beazer homes came in with their numbers. beazer homes, their loss narrowed. they did have higher revenue and pulte said it would step up spending in 2014 on land and the like, even though orders have fallen off a bit. but you could see that it is up .9% at 19.61. back to you. ashley: that was a great year by the way. just saying. not telling you why but it was a great year. tracy: oh, man. all right, are you ready to play the hiring game? anyone remember the crying game? i do. ashley: yeah. tracy: demonstrating your skills on videogame at your knocks job
2:17 pm

>> 21 minutes past the hour right now. hi, everybody, i'm jamie colby with your fox news minute. at this hour we are awaiting verdict for the retrial of amanda knox expected to come down 40 minutes from now. she and her former italian boyfriend both convicted of a 2007 murder much british student meredith kercher. they were overturned by the highest court after they spent four years in prison. knox, not attending the trial. here at home the obama administration may impose financial sanctions on ukrainian firms and protest leaders if violence there continues to escalate. according to reuters demonstrationings began more than two months ago when that country's leader took a political move that aligned it closer with russian interests. so far at least six people have
2:22 pm
been killed in the protests. in new york city, newly-elected mayor bill deblasio reached an agreement to end the battle over the nypd's stop and frisk program. the deal actually paves the way for several reforms of stop and frisk including the appointment of a federal monitor. those are the latest headlines here on the fox newsroom. i'm jamie colby. back to ashley and tracy. ashley: jamie colby, thank you very much. >> you're welcome. ashley: breaking news. the u.s., we understand, will seek death penalty for accused boston bomber, let me see, dzhokhar tsarnaev. i had it and i lost it. attorney general eric holder's decision to press for tsarnaev's execution. 17 of the 30 federal charges against im including a weapon of mass destruction to kill, carry the possibility of the death penalty.
2:23 pm
>> all right. let's move on. job interviews, totally nerve-wracking. reading prompter can be too. ashley: very close second. tracy: all right, but our next guest actually says you can play video games. we have the founder and ceo of knack, a tech startup that uses video games to determine what skills or knacks an individual has. so, first of all, i have to say i still don't know what kind of skills or knacks i have, but if you play the game are you really, people will tell what people can do? >> absolutely. tracy: how? >> well we designed the games with the state of the art behavioral science and neuroscience. we collect maximum amount of data. as you play you're leaving a footprint, your data footprint. think about it as small bread crumbs. those are indicative of underlying traits and abilities the way you think, problem-solve, emphasize thighs with people or logically or
2:24 pm
critically think or maybe not. all those things are reflected in the way you play. think about it this way. we are when we play. if we play monopoly or went out and played peaceket ball in better weather, the way we play and interact with each other, and problem-solve, that really draws out who we are. ashley: who decides what the standards are. you put together the program. what are the standards of people that put the game together are different than what a company would like to have when looking for a perspective candidate? >> great question. the game doesn't impose a standard. we're designing the game as a data machine. think about it a very powerful machine that collects massive amount of data in short period of time through engaging people. to identify the benchmark or predictive signature as we call its the max signature we work with the customer. we work with an investment bank. we say we're interested in figuring out, predicting, identifying who will make a great employee who can also get promoted to manager, director and so forth. so we look at high performers at the company.
2:25 pm
it is unique. organic to the company. we collect date a from their own game placement we look at that and identify what's the unique charactertic, what the unique profile of high performers at the company, based on game playdate at that alone. give you example. we work with shell, the oil company. and shell asks us can you identify for us what makes a great innovator at shell? we've been trying to do that many years and we don't know what makes a great innovatetory. it is hard for us. every ceo of every fortune 500 company is looking or she is looking for ininnovators. this is future of the company. that is where the growth comes from. but figuring out, cracking thhs nut is actually very difficult. so we looked at innovators at shell. those successful and those not as successful. they play two games. shell told us there are really good ones and not so good once. we applied the algorithms and computing power. think about a footprint.
2:26 pm
ashley: how accurate is it? >> turns out it was extremely accurate. because then we took another group of people, we didn't know anything about them. those were shell employees in innovation group. we didn't meet them. didn't know the resume's. we haven't had any data about them. they played the game. we ran our algorithm and ran back the results, tell us how well we did. tracy: they're all playing this wasabi waiter game? >> they played the waiter and surgeons at nyu played wasabi waiter. tracy: people on siriusxm 113, it is literally videogame where you serve people sushi. >> that is on the surface. under the surface there is science working. ashley: are you hooked up to machinery. >> no way. we're not going to go there. ashley: that would make me nervous before i did anything. >> ashley, you're absolutely right. we don't want to make people nervous. we think the game is engaging. tracy: like a lie-detector test and you fail. >> you're having fun of the as you're having fun you're becoming the real you.
2:27 pm
they played wasabi waiter and many companies are using wasabi waiter in the u.s. and outside the u.s. even though it is sushi restaurant they understand the person way never thought before. this is revolution. tracy: way cooler than tyke taking the brings test with pen and pencil of the. >> absolutely. tracy: i did that. >> that is not reliable. doesn't giver you insight. i hear jokes from people the, they told me i need to be a -- ashley: we're running out of time. does this favor younger people than older people? >> we tested that. that's a great question. we tested whether it has any bias or not and turns out it does not. people play and we build algorithms in a way that gives everyone equal -- tracy: that is really, really cool, guy. thanks for being with us. >> thanks for having me. ashley: appreciate it. tracy: that is great question. typically i need like a joystick. ashley: just saying as you get the pong out and your atari.
2:28 pm

your big winners will call green except for a couple on the screen but visa, one of the big winners of the year everyone charging out there beating the street and first quarter earnings thanks to higher operating revenue and payment volume. nicole petallides on the floor of the exchange, i know you are watching exxon. nicole: that is right. here is not look at exxon. it is down 1.2%, 93, 98, exxon, the profit dropped. what happened? declining production. they're making things a little better, what is going on going forward and the company will wrap up exploration projects in the next couple years. that is the news on exxon. it is down today 1.2%. that is where the profit beat the streets, sold off assets and
2:33 pm
slightly to the upside. ashley: thank you very much. tomorrow's business today, stocks on a high, some gained 1700% in value in recent weeks but our next guest says this should be approached with a lot of caution. the head of marijuana investing 420 investor has an expert look at this growing sector. that is the end of the pun but every time we do a pot story, these odd penny stocks, volatile, dangerous, but you have subscribers, people getting into this niche sector, don't you? >> nice to be here. i want to say i am very pro cannabis. it is a dangerous time in the market. dangerous in the a good way. there is a lot going on, very positive, got back from colorado with subscribers, there's a lot
2:34 pm
